Bach on a Moebius strip

The geometrical beauty in J.S. Bach's opus, visualized.

The Moebius strip is, simply put, a surface with just one side. A canon is a musical composition based on a melody, played along with one or more variations (or, in the simplest cases, exact replicas) starting after a delay.

Bach's canon from the Musical Offering uses the very same melody, started at the very same time – just backwards.
